It's Moving Time!

I was thrilled to find this adorable house image and tag on the Joys of the Season Christmas cartridge because they are perfect for making some new address tags and a thank you card for my upcoming move to our new home we are buying! It's wonderful when a very Christmasy cartridge can become so versatile by just changing out colors. Here's how I made my two projects.
Thank You CARD:
Cut the home image on page 50 of the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge. Cut the image at 4 1/2" and again 3 more times with the layer keys selected changing out the color of cardstock to build your scene.
Emboss the trees and grass with the Victoria embossing folder and your Cuttlebug.
Cut a piece of yellow cardstock 2"x2 1/2" to place behind the house for the feel of light from the house.
Adhere everything together.
Add glossy accents to the windows to give them some shine.
Use a red Sakura gelly roll glaze pen to highlight the shingles on the roof.
Stamp your sentiment.
Cut the tag on page 80 at 4 1/2" from patterned paper.
Cut the tag on page 50 at 4 1/2" from solid cardstock.
Adhere tags together, stamp sentiment and write in new address to give to friends and family members.
We will be getting the keys to our new home tomorrow! So excited:) Thanks for visiting.
